Finca Allende

Finca Allende
Rioja
26330 Briones. La Rioja.
Foundation year: 1995

De Gregorio family founded Finca Allende in 1995 in San Asensio and began making wines in a rental warehouse. Currently, with the new facilities located in the municipality of Briones, next to a 17th-century palace of his property, and the accumulated experience of Miguel Ángel De Gregorio, Finca Allende begins a new stage with many more resources and infrastructure to improve even more its sensational wines.

Its strains are in the same municipality of Briones, at an altitude that ranges between 415 and 480 metres. A total of 36 hectares, of which 2 are in plain, 30 in slope - located in hills - and 4 in steep slopes. The type of foot on which the strains are grafted is "Rupestris de Lot". The majority of the plantations -34.5 ha- are red varieties: Tempranillo of 45 years of age (95%), Graciano of 20 years (4%) and 55-year-old Garnacha (1%). The white varieties only cover an area of 1.5 hectares with Viura (60%) and 60-year-old Malvasia (40%).

In reference to the composition of the soil, it is mostly clay-calcareous, with the alluvial substrate that allows the development of deep roots and the extraction of minerals. Its plantations include "Pago" Calvario from which one of the most prestigious wines in the area is born. In addition to providing the grapes from their own farms, they also buy from other trusted winemakers.

Fundamentally they carry out their vinification by skidding the grapes, although they also combine in percentages, and according to criteria, the elaboration by carbonic maceration. Also, numerous overpumping and racking are applied during the elaborations.

      €38.95

      Finca Allende es una de las bodegas de referencia en la historia contemporánea de Rioja. Con la añada 2015, Miguel Ángel de Gregorio presenta dos nuevos vinos de parcela —Mingortiz y Gaminde— que se unen a sus deseados y exclusivos Mártires y Calvario. Mingortiz 2015 procede de una viña de Briones plantada con tempranillo en 1964. Tiene un bonito color cereza negra. En nariz revela intensos aromas de fruta negra como los arándanos y las moras, envueltas en un perfume de especia dulce como el anís. En boca, una entrada sedosa esconde una buena trama tánica con una textura de polvo de cacao. Al final se alarga volviendo a mostrar un perfume de cereza madura y notas especiadas de la barrica con ahumados y chocolate negro. Un vino delicioso, profundo y de buena guarda, del que se han elaborado 12.000 botellas.
